CP ELECTRONICS Provide Control For New Education Centre Of Excellence

CP Electronics has installed controls at the newly refurbished Worcester Royal Infirmary building, which now forms part of the University of Worcester. The brief was to provide accurate and easy adjustment of light levels, something vital for todays places of learning, particularly the lecture areas which have to cater for both traditional teaching and high tech presentations. Flexibility and ease of use are key benefits.

The Grade II listed infirmary building, now re-named the Charles Hastings building, and the adjacent Mullberry House, which used to house doctors working at the hospital, has undergone a 6m refurbishment to create new facilities for students. It will house the Worcester Business School, along with a new wellbeing centre, teaching spaces and computer suites.

Installed and specified by MITIE Engineering Services (Midlands) Ltd, various products from CP have been used to control illumination levels in the corridors, lecture areas, corridors and WCs. These include the passive infrared detector EBDSPIR-PRM, which can be set for absence or presence detection, switching the load on or off according to occupancy after a preset time. The time delay is adjustable between 10 seconds and 99 minutes and, if there is sufficient natural light, a built-in photocell will keep the lighting switched off. It also has the benefit of optional manual override and can be used with incandescent, fluorescent and compact fluorescent light sources.

Specifically designed for use in open plan areas, corridors and aisles CPs MWS-3 Multi-Sense has been used throughout the refurbishment. Unlike fixed head sensors, the MWS-3 utilises an adjustable sensor head to provide a unique presence detection capability. By changing the angle of the sensor head, different detection patterns are achieved for variations in area coverage with a reduced number of sensors required. The EBD-SPIR/DD Direct Dim, a ceiling mounted passive infrared presence detector from CP, has also been used extensively to provide presence detection and dimming control in one simple unit. This compact presence detector is an unobtrusive, self contained unit that allows override by the user. To allow for complete ownership, CP has supplied a DD-LCDHS, a remote control programming handset, to the college for future programming changes.

This combination of lighting controls has provided a simple and cost effective solution to energy efficiency for University of Worcester, whilst ensuring the best possible illumination for students and staff alike. A reduction in installation time and, therefore, costs was also achieved with the use of CP products.
